ABSTRACT Neste trabalho são apresentados 50 casos de trauma do joelho submetidos a ressonância magnética, no período de janeiro de 1996 a dezembro de 1997. Foram avaliados o aspecto e a incidência das principais alterações ósseas, correlacionando-as com os mecanismos de agressão e com os dados clínicos, e demonstrando as principais lesões associadas. As contusões ósseas foram os achados mais comuns, sendo encontradas em 38 indivíduos (76%). As fraturas osteocondrais ocorreram em cinco pacientes (10%). As fraturas ósseas foram detectadas em cinco casos (10%), sendo três deles associados a contusão de outros compartimentos ósseos adjacentes. A condromalácia da patela mostrou-se presente em apenas dois indivíduos (4%). Concluímos que a ressonância magnética é o método de escolha no estudo por imagem para o diagnóstico das lesões ósseas no trauma do joelho.

    ABSTRACT: After a brief review of the historical development of knee arthrography and MR imaging of the knee, the author concludes that MR imaging has become widely accepted as the imaging method of choice by both radiologists and nonradiologists. The author examines the current relative shortcomings and future developments of MR imaging of the knee.

    ABSTRACT: This article discusses the anatomy of the menisci and various signal abnormalities. Morphologic changes indicative of degenerative disease, degenerative tear, intra- and para-meniscal cysts, and traumatic tear are also covered.

    ABSTRACT: Both retrospective and blinded analyses of thin-section, high-resolution magnetic resonance (MR) images of the knee joint, produced using a solenoid surface coil, indicate that MR imaging is an effective technique for evaluating meniscal injuries. Images of 49 patients were evaluated, and the results were correlated with those of subsequent arthroscopy. A grading scale was developed to rate the index of suspicion of a meniscal tear based on the MR images. Overall, approximately 80% of menisci rated grade 4 (definite tear) or 3 (probable tear) were found to have corresponding tears at arthroscopy. In many other patients with a grade 4 or 3 meniscus in whom a corresponding tear was not found arthroscopically, meniscal tears at other sites or other abnormalities were correctly diagnosed using MR. A majority of the false-positive MR images involved the posterior horns of the menisci, the sites of most false-negative arthroscopic diagnoses. The predictive value of a negative MR image was almost 100%. Even in patients with moderate-to-large effusions, the menisci were accurately evaluated. The results imply that MR imaging is useful in the preoperative evaluation of suspected meniscal tears.
